Little Red Wagon - HEARTS!

One of my favs HEARTS ! And I picked up my new Cricut Cartridge the other day at 2 friends, who by the way have ridiculously good prices on these! I bought the Stamping Solutions cartridge... you can check it out HERE!
But I recommend you go in and look at the back cause it rocks!


I used the row of hearts in 2 1/4 " for the main image but then in 1/2" for the little border around the tin... seriously cute! All the rest is PTI! :) Except the tin is from Michael's!

Happy Birthday WENDY!

Holy smokes it is Wendy birfday and we LOVE her!

Papertrey Day!

So I thought I would show you what it is like when my PTI box gets here... I am sure Nicole thinks I have a store here in Ontario that I order for but really it is just a group of amazing women with great taste!!

So about a week after $1000 hits my credit card the box finally comes! My hubby had to come with me this time to carry the box out. Yikes, not sure I will be able to suck him in again. lol

The box unpacking...

All the stamps together...

All the paper together...

And then the misc ribbon, ink, twine, etc...

I love this new bench in my hall way to sort on... I was using the floor in the basement but too much bending and carrying...

Then (3 hours later) when all is sorted, I send out the email to the vultures, ahem I mean ladies... lol...

I would show you the spreadsheet I used to calculate the totals, shipping, duty, blah but I was afraid to loose readers... hahaha!

Now to play!

Friendzy Friday!

Ok so for my first friendzy friday I wanted to be a bit ca-razy... so I made some hair bands. Not the ones from the eighties like Bon Jovi or Poison silly, ones for my hair!

I love all the kewl ones out right now but seriously 10 - 20 bucks for a hair band??

So I picked up a pack of six skinny bands from the $ store and pulled out some ribbon I thought was purdy...


Started out slow with a few basic bows...
I flat panel bow that I pop dotted on.

Just a messy polka dot bow!

But then I though I want a valentines one so...
I stuck some puff heart stickers on one.

Then I tried a double flat paneled bow done by just folding the ribbon over onto itself and adhereing down with glue dots.

I also added buttons to one by simply picking the buttons, adding the glue dots to the back and lining them up.
Then I just rolled the band through the glue dots!

I also braved a ribbon bloom, stitching the ribbon on one side and then pulling tight and tie in a little knot!

If necessary I popped a little something on the back to I didn't have a head full of glue...

So here they all are...
Cute huh and easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Oh and this shot is for those that don't think I wear them...

Oh and I paid $2 bucks! :)
Thanks for hanging in til the end!
